Research Description

Dr. Brown’s research focus has been on osteoporosis, as well as the artificial pancreas for treatment of type 1 diabetes. She has been a principal investigator of an NIH K23 mentored clinical research award focusing on the effects of lactation on bone physiology. 

She is currently active in multiple clinical trials conducted within the Center for Diabetes Technology. These research programs are aimed at further identifying factors of glycemic variability in patients with type 1 diabetes, particularly glucose changes surrounding the menstrual cycle. The Center for Diabetes Technology is active in developing an artificial pancreas designed to enhance automated insulin delivery in patients with type 1 diabetes.
